On the first day I was in England, I took pictures with my Canon camera.  The second day, the camera wouldn’t work, so my trusty iPhone took all the pictures for the rest of the trip.  Yesterday, I spent twenty minutes on the phone with an troubleshooter from Canon and it turns out the lens died, not the camera, which is certainly better news than needing a whole new camera body. Today’s pictures are taken with my Canon.

Our first stop in Wales was St. Fagan’s National Museum of History, a history of Welsh life. It was fun walking around the grounds and looking at the old farmhouse, the chapel,  the schoolhouse, and other buildings, but, of course, what caught my eye was the castle.

And, I was allowed to take pictures inside! The kitchen had a large display of beautiful copper pots, bowls and utensils. The dining room had blue dishes in the china cabinet and I have a weakness for blue dishes (actually any vintage dishes)

Unfortunately, the rest of my indoor pictures came out too dark to use in the blog,but the outside pictures of the  gardens came out great.I don’t know what kind of tree this is, but it certainly was eye-catching. My favorite part of this garden was this arching walkway. I could have gone back and forth a dozen times, but my time was up and it was back on the bus.
